    Well, if you were a Unix guy, then you would recognize Motif Widgets. It looks like you are missing a package called libmotif3.

    tgalati4@Dell600m-mint14 ~ $ apt-cache search libmotif
    libmotif-dev - Open Motif - development files
    libmotif4 - Open Motif - shared libraries
    libmotif4-dbg - Open Motif - shared libraries

    It looks like the default Ubuntu distribution only has libmotif4.

    So, adding another log to the fire:

    1. Modify build scripts to point to libmotif4 and hope it works. ln -s libmotif3 libmotif4

    2. Compile libmotif3 in a current Ubuntu build environment. "Open Motif" should have source code available somewhere.

    3. Find precompiled binaries (*.deb) of libmotif3 from someone else who faced a similar problem.

    4. Find libmotif3 on an older version of Ubuntu and build that workstation to use for development. I know Jaunty has it.

    I love sitting by the fireplace.

    Okay, so I finally got around to installing a sacrificial Ubuntu 12.04 32 bit box.

    Install goes great, no problems, and in fact it populates in Application lens. It opened a terminal and prompted for the usual agreement which I accepted. Now nothing happens.

    I really wish IBM would make more Ubuntu friendly software! Valves doing it.
    (I've waited five years to say that)

    @tgalati4 I love sitting by the fireplace too...when it's on Next up I'll try what you posted on the libmotif3 package. Thanks for your continued help!

    Tried my level best for each of the solutions you suggested for a 64 bit system to no avail.

    The timing of this problem couldn't be worse, just spent a while playing with Fedora 18. While I've never had a problem using Lotus in Fedora (with a little tweaking). The installer alone of Fedora 18 is practically unusable. A total switch to Ubuntu at this point seems imminent.

    Would there be a way to package libmotif3.deb WITH the lotus.deb?

    Just installed Notes 9 on Ubuntu 64 without problems.
    Installing it completely with no errors in the operating system
